Bill / Scott - 

RISABase has not been "officially" updated to the new steel codes yet.
However, we are "Beta" testing the version 2.0 release right now.  

Actually, we're not planning on having the final release until the fall.
Therefore, this should technically be termed an "alpha" test release. We are
sending it out to select customers who are desperate for the updates....
especially those who want to see the anchor bolt pullout capacity stuff.

I do not seem to be able to identify anything that isn't about ten years 
old or so, and updated with the latest design provisions.

Anyone have anything to recommend?

I have used RISABase ( in a past life.
It is not completely clear if it has been updated from the version that I
used about 8 years ago or not.  If you have not already looked into it, it
might be worth an email to them to see where things stand.
